About the property

5 Bedroom, 4 1/2 Bath

This spectacular beach front home in SummerCamp Beach is truly a vacation home like no other. Perfect for large or extended families, this Gulf Front home has 3 master suites all with a private luxury baths. Two bunkrooms provide 8 more beds offering plenty of sleeping arrangements for children of all ages. A gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and custom cabinetry will delight those who truly want a first class experience. Designed from the ground up to take advantage of the ocean setting, this home puts you at the edge of the water with breath taking views for literally miles out to the Gulf of Mexico. A gentle breeze awaits you on the spacious screened porch that wraps the entire front of the house. Down below features a large gathering area where you can shower outdoors after swimming or beach combing. Two large family rooms allow for total living space flexibility with flat screen tvs in every bedroom. The unique architecture of the home provides massive windows throughout, offering amazing views of the entire beach area.

'Happy Ours' is located in SummerCamp beach. This resort community provides a unique beach experience that is both rustic and natural at the same time.

There is a community pool within walking distance of the home. Kick back and enjoy breathtaking views of the gulf as you lounge under a cabana or swim in the pool.

If you are looking for adventure, walk down to the kayak shack and hop on one of the kayaks or canoes. Cruise the shallows of the gulf while getting up close and personal with the sea life. Watch out for jumping mullet!

Commune with nature as you walk along one of the many boardwalks in the community that wind through the undisturbed marshlands, wetlands and woods.

This is what old Florida feels like and you will sense that you have stepped back into a simpler time, where fishing, boating, shelling, swimming and reconnecting with family is possible. Located just 45 minutes south of the Tallahassee airport, getting here is quite convenient, but leaving will be very hard.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family has been vacationing at Alligator Point over 40 years so we decided to try something new this year because we found this house on VRBO! I am glad that we decided to try something new-this house is amazing and perfect for multiple families. The three master suites was just right for my extended family and nieces/nephews in the bunk bed rooms upstairs. The wraparound screened porches were great anytime of the day! Although I missed the waves at Alligator Point, the clear beach area right outside our door was great for kayaking, paddleboarding, fishing, and watching the jumping mullet! We also watched the porpoises, fish, turtles, small sharks throughout the week! The pool area was great and the boardwalks made for a nice stroll through the grounds! The price was just right also-this house on another beach would have been double the price. Erika, the property manager, answered my emails immediately and made the rental process very easy. I highly recommend that you try this place out if you are looking for a laid-back, relaxing time!

The home was clean and well maintained! Beyond anything I had expected!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with 11 members of my family from Ohio. When we pulled up to the property I was speechless! It's the most beautiful home with a fantastic view of the ocean! The home was everything and more than what I expected. We ordered Big Daddy's pizza the first night and the service and pizza were really good. IGA grocery store and Dollar General are 15 minutes down the road very convenient for groceries etc... we had ages of kids ranging from 8-16 and the shallow water steps away from the front door was perfect for playing an exploring during low tide. We found horseshoe crabs, hermit crabs caught fish and caught sting rays! We were the only ones at the pool both times we went. We also had a blast when the water was calm using the kayaks! We visited the Gulf Specimen Aquarium in Pancea, Florida on a rainy morning, just 20 minutes away. The kids really enjoyed that. We also drove 30 minutes to Saint George Island, the kids wanted to see big waves for the first time, I highly recommend visiting the Island it's breathtaking. Erika is wonderful and attentive to any needs or questions. This is a very remote, private and relaxing way to vacation if that's what you're looking for this home is absolutely perfect!! We will definitely be booking again!

Mothers Day Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at "Happy Ours". House is very roomy and accommodated our family of 12 very well. The younger set enjoyed the pool and the kayaks. The only problem encountered was the stairs, My wife and I are both 75 and we don't to stairs very well.

Excellent stay almost in the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 10 people in this beautiful house. May be beautiful is even an understatement. Everything is also available. From the first moment you feel home. The only disappointing thing is when you have to leave the house. If you are looking for a house in which you can live with a lot of people, this is a great possibility.

beach washed out to sea

  • 1 of 5

We were exited to book our stay at the massive Happy Ours home in Summer camp beach. The neighborhood is advertised to have a clubhouse and resturant, however the clubhouse was closed the whole time and looked to be out of business. The neighborhood which has upwards of 170 lots but only a handfull of houses may one day live up to the fantasy resort the ads describe, but not anytime soon. We were disappointed to find that while we were located right on the beach, it was not suitable for any conventional beach activities except sunning or wading. The tide has very little effect on the waterline, and the area outsidw the house is littered with erosion control boulders and pinestraw. There is also a drain marked as storm sewer that leaks wastewater days after the last rain down the right side of the property. Appx. 60 ft. from the house. Also, if you have kids, you should know that there is not a single bathtub in the house. The beautiful interrior of the home boasts 16' ceilings. This equates to 1.5 staicases to climb between each floor. Hope your in great stair climbing shape if you plan to stay here. Also, although it is advertised at one rate per night but ends up costing 30% more than advertised. You may as well plan on driving to the pool or a useable beach. Bring your own groceries too since the closest store is 12 miles away, and almost ALL local restaurants are closed except Friday and Saturday. Went for pleasure, and got a workout and a lesson in temperance and fortitude instead. Good luck.
